Resource Hub

COVID-19 Resource Hub

Like individuals and institutions across the world, ACRC is monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. Our members are on the front lines in communities, providing essential behavioral and mental health services and supports. Therapeutic residential care providers continue to do their best work in these trying times. Even as staff members care for their own families, these leaders are being innovative, collaborative, and intersectional to ensure they maintain the highest quality care through strong relationships with the children, families, and communities they serve.

As an organization dedicated to advancing best practice and innovation, ACRC is sharing resources from our members, and from public and private institutions, to enhance the COVID-19 preparedness and response capacity of residential providers. ACRC is committed to advancing practice and policy that will help children and families thrive even in the midst of this evolving public health crisis.

As the situation continues to rapidly evolve, ACRC will continue to monitor developments and provide the latest information.
